I've blogged about director Neill Blomkamp before, due to his astounding short films and his commercials for Halo 3. Long story short, dude's a South African-born director who makes some insanely smart, creepy, and original shorts; Peter Jackson once hired him direct a Halo movie; the Halo movie fell apart; now, Blomkamp's feature debut will be District 9, which comes out in August. The trailer went online today, and holy shit. It's YouTubed below, and HD is here.

District 9 looks to be based on my favorite of Blomkamp's shorts, Alive in Joburg—which if you haven't already seen, you need to watch immediately.
